We're Checking Out for The Very Last Time

July 31, 2015 at 2:22 PM | by | ()

"Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end.”—Seneca, a Roman philosopher but we know this line best from Semisonic’s song, "Closing Time."

On Friday, July 31, HotelChatter, Jaunted and VegasChatter will check out for the very last time. We will be integrating our content into Condé Nast Traveler, our parent company since 2008.  

Ever since HotelChatter published its first story in 2003, we’ve been on an incredible journey with all of you dear readers, who, we were delighted to discover, are just as hotel-obsessed as our team of contributors and editors. 

How many times did we gripe together about the insanity of peek-a-boo bathrooms, or get frustrated over yet another hotel opening delay? What about when we shared our pics of killer views and surprise suite upgrades? You were there every hotel room of the way.

And it was because of you that we were able to launch Jaunted and fly all sorts of airlines in different cabins, explore hot new destinations, and discuss useful travel hacks. It was also because of you that we were able to launch VegasChatter and cover everything in the mercurial city of Las Vegas from its restaurants, shows, hotels, and casinos, while doling out a few gambling tips here and there, too.  

But alas, the cabin doors have closed, the room bill has been settled and the last of our chips have been cashed. Thank you for all the memories and we hope to meet you again in a hotel lobby, airport or casino someday soon.

In the meantime, you can keep up with your travel addiction at CNTraveler.com. If you’re signed up for our newsletter, you will automatically receive the Condé Nast Traveler newsletter going forward. If you aren’t signed up, you can do so here.

Happy travels.

Sincerely,
HotelChatter, Jaunted and VegasChatter
